We added one new donor in July, 2018 with a donation of $100.
Current total donations are now $35,013, with a net total of
$34,138 in our bank account after past IRS filings.
The total number of donors is now at
196. All donors
(individuals, couples and groups) are listed alphabetically at the end
of this update.
While we have surpassed our
funding goal, please know if you have yet to donate, you can still
become part of the Memorial as any additional funds will be used for
donations to Veteran’s Charities and possibly scholarships for worthy
HHS students going on to college. So,
if you have not donated and can spare as little as $10 for this worthy
cause to recognize your fellow alumni who served our Great Country, we
will very much appreciate any amount you can spare.
Remember, all donations are
tax deductible. Just follow
the simple instructions below. Your
generosity will be very much appreciated.

We began accepting
donations in October, 2014, upon achieving tax-exempt status from the
IRS. $3,400 was raised in
the remaining 3 months of 2014, $6,200 in 2015, $8,300 in 2016 and
$16,488 in 2017. The new
total well surpasses our $25,000 goal and expectations!
We owe this result to all our donors who have helped achieve
it over the past 3+ years!!

leave anyone behind from earlier class years (the 1940’s and 50’s)

during the Vietnam Era (Vietnam Era dates are shown in the “Memorial
